RNAV WAYPOINT CHARTING EFFECTS ON PILOT PROCEDURES, TRAINING AND WORKLOAD

The analysis included in this paper begins with a summary of an analytical effort which was performed to establish waypoint charting requirements. From this theoretical base, the paper introduces several RNAV Standard Instrument Departure and Standard Terminal Arrival Routes which are in use today. Finally, the paper quantifies the advantages to be gained by both the pilot and the air traffic control system through the proper use of pilot procedures. This quantification is accomplished by using detailed flight test results from the Miami, Denver and Chicago terminal areas and flight simulator results from the University of Illinois and the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center.
